The Chinese-English Translation and Interpreting course offered by the University of Essex will build on the knowledge and skills you acquired in your previous qualifications, and is unique in the emphasis it places on hands-on training. With the help of native speakers, you learn how to use your language skills to translate, interpret and subtitle effectively, using the latest industry-standard software, in a culturally sensitive way.
You cover topics including:
- Bilateral, consecutive and simultaneous interpreting
- Technologies of translation
- Effective note-taking
- Written translation
Our course directly leads to a career in translation, interpreting and subtitling, in the media, business and tourism between the English-speaking world and China.
We work with the University’s Employability and Careers Centre to help you find out about further work experience, internships, placements, and voluntary opportunities.
Within our Department of Language and Linguistics, we also offer supervision for PhD and MPhil. We offer supervision in areas including language acquisition, language learning and language teaching, culture and communication, psycholinguistics, language disorders, sociolinguistics, and theoretical and descriptive linguistics.
